Grahamstown Ghost Tour

Great report by Luke Ashwell Beckmann on the revived Grahamstown Ghost Tour. Thank you Luke for taking your group of international guests on the tour!

Well done Brian Jackson. An excellent tour! Informative, historically interesting and guaranteed to send cold shivers down the spine!

Thanks to Robyn Cooper and Cheryl Fischer of The Grahamstown Project team for reviving the Grahamstown Ghost Tour with Brian and Luke!

Special mention Hannalie Marsh for asking the question on her visit to Grahamstown last year, “Does Brian Jackson still do his Ghost Tour of Grahamstown?”.

Before moving back to Grahamstown in Oct 2017, Graeme was a bank executive based in the big smoke and craziness of Joburg. He has 20 years’ experience in the Payments Industry. He is a Chartered Accountant, has a Masters in Management by Research (MMR) from Wits Business School, and attended an Advanced Management Programme (AMP) offered by INSEAD (The Business School for the World!) in France.  

Graeme is the founder of The Grahamstown Project. It’s simple. He says, “Grahamstown is a microcosm of South Africa. If we can’t get this place to function properly then the whole country is stuffed. Many of the troubles we experience as a country today have their roots here in Grahamstown. it is here where black and white people first engaged in conflict on the African continent. It is here where 9 wars of dispossession over 100 years took place and virtually destroyed the amaXhosa nation. But we are where we are. I don’t have a British passport and the boat-trip back to where my ancestors came from is exorbitantly expensive. Furthermore, this is my home. I am a son of Africa. We must work together to redress the injustices of the past and move as one into a brighter future.”
